2008 Pilot Honda Steering & Suspension Services

When To Get 2008 Honda Pilot Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2008 Honda Pilot, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your Pilot feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2008 Honda Pilot in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Pilot suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Honda Pilot suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Honda Pilot Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2008 Honda Pilot’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Pilot’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Honda Pilot shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Pilot’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

2008 Pilot Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Pilot's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Honda Pilot? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Honda Pilot power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Pilot’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Honda's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
